Spend less on Navy

Thank you, Ken, Linda and Tony for informing us, with data and suggestions, about the Navy Growler Expansion at Whidbey Naval Air Base, (Weekly News, Nov. 28). It IS our civic duty to participate and let our voices be heard. A well-equipped military is appreciated but using well over 50 percent of y/our yearly government budget is expensive not only to our pocket books but to all the other missed opportunities our country could offer bringing us into a more productive and equitable society. It shows our priorities as a culture.
Think of the missed investment in our youth to direct them away from despair and poverty especially in this era dominated by drug addiction and suicides. We participating citizenry need to reassess our priorities.
